The process of photograph selection included the offer to all Prana Writer members to browse the Public Collection of the Local Studies Library and select around ten photographs each. We submitted requests for around a hundred and fifty photos to the Local Studies Library. Most were approved.
Some of the photos we could not use were of Indigenous people and artefacts, of both local and Pacific Island origin.
We could not use these images because Indigenous peoples want the opportunity to tell their own stories about themselves and their culture. However, I hope that Aboriginal writers can find inspiration in the other photos.
